I remember Starflight (aka Mass Effect before Mass Effect) fondly, although I didn't play it that much.

I had a NES knockoff machine called the Polystation. I especially enjoyed TMNT3, Popeye and Ice Climbers. Didn't even realize how old those games were, and when I got my own computer I was perfectly happy to play retro-ish games like the earlier Quest for Glory games. Also played plenty of Escape Velocity and its sequels. Really hope those games get re-released on GOG.

You mean this commercial? It wasn't my first rpg, but I do remember buying it used from a classmate. I think the box art sold me on it.

That's the one. The game was a little less realistic. But I loved it.

Grew up playing point & click games like Monkey Island, Simon the Sorcerer, Flight of the Amazon Queen, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, Maniac Mansion, Police Quest. Also the classic Cannon Fodder, played that a lot on the Amiga.

PC (DOS):

Prince (of Persia) : I just knew it as "Prince" though, Prince.exe
Home alone 2

There was also this weird game (black and white?) with cats in it. That was at school and it was really old.
Also, I used to play "space invaders" at my cousin's house. I really had to wait to experience that. I must have been very little.

PC (Windows):

Quake I & II (never really liked Doom, but Quake scared me a lot when I was little. I sometimes even deleted the game because it had some really creepy jump scares and I would be playing late at night and almost have a heart attack).
The Incredible Machine (I doubt anyone knows this, loved it, really unique game)
Gearheads (I doubt anyone knows this either)
Destruction Derby (Crashing these cars was orgasmic for some reason, lol)

SEGA:

Tiny Toons
Dolphin (I don't think this one's popular either)

Playstation:

Driver (I really loved that game's graphics and controls)
Armored Core (this game was so fun and frustrating at the same time)
Metal Gear (just the first one)

Probably a lot of other stuff I just wrote what popped in my mind.

Read some here and started remembering others.

So I completely forgot we had a game machine thing of some kind. Before having our first computer we were playing Super Mario Bros. I tried it a bit a few years ago for nostalgia's sake and it holds up pretty well. We also had a Spider Man game on that thing, not sure which. And a basketball game. Now that I think about it, I grew up with a bunch of sports games because of my brother. Oh back to Mario, a relative had Super Mario World so I got to play that a bit. Another relative had a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game, I think the Genesis one.

SimCity 2000. Can't say I played it. I just made all the bad stuff happen. Destruction and mayhem is fun, apparently. This is a cool type of scenario for actual God. We're its little ****ed up fantasy.

Wolfenstein! How could I not remember? Infuriating to boot. A few more wall textures would've helped. Never tried Brutal Wolfenstein, maybe I should.

Tomb Raider. I'm sure about 3 and Chronicles, and definitely not the first one. Smooth movement. And Lara, you know, didn't exactly bother me.

Medal of Honor: Allied Assault. First played it in a cybercafe. My brother sitting next to me was not happy, 'cause I was really excited about the graphics and presentation, wanted to share it, and had headphones on. At home I played it on Hard. Hard gets unfair but Normal is too easy.

Need for Speed III. And Road Rash, that's a good one. I still play it sometimes. Mayhem is fun.

I mentioned it elsewhere but Max Payne. Still awesome.

That's it for now I think. Had missed a couple good ones.

Carnivores, and Carnivores 2 which looks and plays almost the same but is much better. It'd be cool to see a proper remake. There was something but it looked like crap.

Vice City. I used the weapon cheats and completed not one mission for years. For all the weapons at my disposal, I remember using the baseball bat a lot. Why was beating the **** out of people with a baseball bat so much fun again? IV's knife was worse though. Watching my brother play that creeped me out a bit at times.

MK4. For a while there my guy was Sub-Zero, simply because my brothers' guy was Scorpion. Then I discovered Reptile and started dominating, so they started trying different characters. The bald skull face guy was good, and Raiden could be a challenge, but I still retired as the champ.

I saw some footage of one of the newer games and it's ****ing gross. I could still play some 4 though.

Lol, I don't think I ever skipped that intro

I remember being blown away by the graphics, and the song is pretty cool.

1999? Wow, that's such a long time ago : /

I think I was mostly playing it in the early 2000's though
